Revista - YOO on the ‘Horizon’ in Bangalore
House of Hiranandani, India’s premium real estate developer and has today unveiled a new luxury real estate enclave featuring a development with residences designed by YOO inspired by Starck, bringing high-end living to Bangalore for the first time.
Signature will comprise three distinct developments bringing the cream of global design talent to India. Horizon, a YOO inspired by Starck project, and Signature Villas, by Patty Mak are both based in Bangalore. Seagull, based in Chennai has been designed by Indian architect, Hafeez Contractor.
With Horizon, House of Hiranandani has secured the first YOO designed project in Bangalore, marking the fourth YOO project in India. London-based property designer firm YOO was co-founded by entrepreneur John Hitchcox and world-leading designer Philippe Starck. The YOO inspired by Starck brand is a collaboration between YOO and Starck that combines a rich tapestry of designs infusing both natural and cultural inspirations. John Hitchcox has pioneered modern living during 25 years working in the real estate industry, and YOO is renowned around the globe for its sophisticated styles and unique public areas that truly enhance a sense of community among residents.
For its Signature Villas project, House of Hiranandani has invited Patty Mak from Suying Designs of Singapore to make her first foray into the Indian market. Known for having a strong sense of intimacy and warmth to her styles – which extend from ethnic and regal to colonial and contemporary – she has built up an enviable reputation designing homes for the rich and famous throughout Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and mainland China. Fusing Eastern elements into a Western setting with subtlety and intensity, Patty Mak’s integrated approach to creating exterior and interior designs will ensure Signature Villas set new standards.
Ms. Neha Hiranandani, Director, House of Hiranandani, said:
“The tastes of Indian consumers are continuing to evolve and with that refined palette and an array of different options we are committed not just to offering the finest quality homes, but designs that will truly enhance people’s lives. Our partnerships with John Hitchcox’s YOO and with Patty Mak will ensure we can meet increasing demands from our customers while offering homes on a par with the best in the world. Our partnership will add a new dimension to the real estate market in Chennai and Bangalore and this continue to benefit India for many years to come.”
John Hitchcox, Chairman, YOO, said:
“Bangalore is one the world’s top entrepreneurial cities, so I am delighted to be bringing the YOO brand here. These are exciting times for India. Economic growth is changing the country forever and with that, people are now seeking a living experience that reflects their life and their changing tastes. We are committed to improving people’s lives by offering them fantastic design and the ability to live somewhere that brings them together with likeminded individuals. Through a mix of sophisticated luxury and practical innovation, I know that Horizon will really offer Bangalore the living space it deserves and I am incredibly excited to be working with House of Hiranandani and hope we can announce more projects in the near future.”
Horizon marks the fourth YOO designed project in India after YOO Pune, in Pune, and Lodha Fiorenza and Lodha Wadala in Mumbai.
